Podcast 53: A Conversation with Beth Winterburn

NYC (1)

Beth Winterburn’s work is characterized by bold, gestural brush strokes and minimalist detail. As a nod to her analytical roots in photography and architecture, she approaches each piece with a mathematical mindset – counting evens and odds, balancing lights and darks, visually “slicing” the composition into thirds and fifths. She approaches her work as if it’s a problem to solve: combining and contrasting elements with and against one another to create a cohesive yet dynamic piece. Beth’s work is an exploration of contrast, tension and resolve. Methodical by nature, she challenges her own ideas of control by experimenting with materials, allowing them to behave as they naturally would, with subtle direction. Each canvas, piece of paper or panel is an invitation to engage – to feel, to react, to explore the tension and resolve of each and every element and property used to build it.

Beth joins us in Episode 53 at Let the Music Play Podcast as we discuss her processes, the why behind her work, and the journey of crafting a career through a medium she enjoys and is passionate about.

Below is a glimpse into her work! And click here to view her online store!
